Italy has the highest number of deaths per 100,000 population among the most affected countries. Italy has added nearly 29,000 deaths since September 1.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 1.8 million Italians have been infected with the virus. According to health professionals, this figure reflects a poorly funded healthcare system with few ICU beds, delays in government regulation, and an elderly population.
